About Gizmo

 Gorgeous Gizmo sadly came to LAA as she wasn't getting on with the other pets in the home. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, always showing her love and affection for those she is closest to. Gizmo can be a little timid initially, especially if in an environment that she doesn't know. However, once you show her a bit of love, she soon becomes your best friend. As gizmo is a long haired cat, she will require regular grooming to keep her looking her best, and therefore a home with experience of grooming long-haired cats, or a home with the will to learn, would be preferred. As Gizmo is very unsure around other animals, she would need to be the only pet in the home, but could happily live with respectful children over the age of 10 years old. 

Cat Care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box!
